2015 Awards Ceremony & Gala: A Night to Honor and Applaud our Best and Brightest Stars
05/28/2015

 

“Our forefather, Thucydides, had written that the secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom is courage. Have the courage to chase your dreams, to dare boldly in the face of overwhelming odds and attempt the impossible. Let your inner Greek shine and tune out the naysayers. Find your aristeia, your bestness, and live life with passion and conviction, always be true to thine own self.” These are the words of Dean Karnazes, our 2015 Paradigm Award honoree. 

Dean knows how to push himself to the limit, and try to be the best you can be. Named one of Time Magazines “Top 100 most Influential People in the World” he remains humble and grateful, stating that “receiving the Paradigm Award means more to me, because it is personal. I am Greek, a modern Greek, and I will cherish this award forever.”
